Camp Courage helps children who are experiencing grief and loss by incorporating the fun of camp along with healing activities to help them…

  • Understand that their feelings are normal
  • Realize that they’re not alone in their grief
  • Learn that it’s OK to have fun while still grieving
  • Have the opportunity to share their loss and memories

Camp Courage 2024

July 29 – August 2, 2024

To attend Camp Courage, children must be ages K-6 in the 2024-2025 school year and attend school in or reside in Mercer County.

Activities at camp are designed to help kids learn different coping skills, build resilience and have fun.

  • Team building activities help develop social skills and emphasize the importance of helping others
  • Games teach coping skills that help youth deal with life’s daily stressors in addition to grief
  • Arts and crafts help kids express emotions for times when words fall short
  • Decompression times help youth learn ways of handling stress and calming strategies

A licensed independent social worker with grief certification is on-site all week to assist youth with any special needs. All staff and volunteers go through training prior to camp as well as background checks.

Interested in volunteering? Contact Kateri Linn, Director of Programming.


Following Camp Courage, ongoing support groups will be available to provide follow-up care and continued support for the children and caregivers who participated in the day camp. More details to come.
